It is essential that all employers and workplaces comply with their work health and safety (WHS) obligations.
Recognising that a strong culture of safety is critical to the success of a business, our team of experts provide comprehensive legal advice to a broad range of clients on all aspects of WHS, ensuring that strong governance systems are in place to achieve compliance and avoid exposure to major risks.
We support our clients to gain a clear understanding of their duties and responsibilities under WHS legislation and can assist with implementing a comprehensive WHS framework. Noting the importance of regular consultation with employees regarding compliance with WHS obligations, we frequently provide training on health and safety in the workplace.
Additionally, we are able to support and advise you if things do go wrong and result in a workplace accident. In such circumstances, it is essential to call us as early as possible to help manage the situation. Workplace accidents can have significant financial and reputational risks. We can help you to navigate through any potential regulator investigations and prosecutions and at the same time manage your relationship with relevant stakeholders.
